Our daughter who has CVI, benefits so much from this type of therapy. She loves it so much. We will continue for years to come. And will probably have to do actual riding lessons when she is older. Staff is top notch and very personal. There's nothing bad to say. What's even better is that it incorporates the love of God. I would highly recommend this. We look forward to it every day we get to go. Nothing means more than friendly faces, laughs, and scriptures. Love it!

Carly's Great Team!
